Before watching this movie, I haven't got a clue who Paul Bettany or Maggie Q are, but I like them now! However, Karl Urban is one of my fav authors but he plays the bad guy.
I like this angle on the vampire take... that vampires are a totally different specie to humans. Just as cats are of a different specie to dogs. I also like the action flicks, they were presented in such an authentic manner that I could totally believe that these priest warriors can do it. Awesome! For those bike enthusiasts, I guess the bikes in the movie would be like a "bike-candy" to you. They look fast and fab with nitro boosts which makes them go even faster! Cool!!It being a vampire movie, it didn't have too much gory details which I like. Just enough to make it realistic but not too much to make me wanna be sick. However, there were a couple of scenes there though that did not follow rational thought which brought the "suspension of disbelief" down a notch. But on the whole, I enjoyed this movie and was worth the money I paid for it at the cinema.Overall, I'd give this movie a 4 out of 5.
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries
